Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    67:13
"... a disc full of remarkable violin playing ... presents a powerful, individual view of the music."
- Gramophone

"Zehetmair has the flamboyance required ... he inhabits these pieces naturally, seeking out the most expressive nuances of touch and tempo in each bar of the music."
- The Independent

"... he sounds close up, with only enough reverberation to keep his sound humidified ... everyone, from performers, students and violin aficionados to general collectors, should take note. Strongly recommended."
- Fanfare

"Four Stars ... Zehetmair employs an astonishing dynamic range, articulated by a glittering array of lifted and legato bow strokes that tickles both the ear and the imagination ... a white knuckle ride from beginning to end."
- BBC Music Magazine

Austrian violinist and conductor Thomas Zehetmair presents this critically-praised modern interpretation of Paganini's challenging 24 Caprices, recorded in 2007 amid the legendary acoustics of the St. Gerold monastery in Austria.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
